Committee assignments


In the 2011-2012 legislative session, McGeachin served on these committees:


In the 2009-2010 legislative session, McGeachin served on these committees:



Rep. McGeachin introduced a bill in 2011 in the House State Affairs Committee that would shift more of the burden of the health care fund from the state to county governments. The state and counties share the costs of the fund, with counties pay the first $11,000 of health bills and Idaho paying the rest.

A few weeks prior, Rep. Lynn Luker brought legislation that would change the language concerning the administration of the fund. Idaho Code dictates that the health fund must cover “necessary” medical procedures, a term which Luker wants to change to “emergency.” He says the bill would save Idaho about $5 million, but hospitals oppose it because they say medical centers would have to eat the uncovered health costs.

McGeachin’s bill would increase the amount counties pay to $12,000 and the state would continue to pay the rest.

“We are, as a state, looking for every dollar we can find today,” said McGeachin. “These are some savings to the state.”[2]
